World Teachers’ Day Award Ceremony

October 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

World Teachers’ Day is a great opportunity to celebrate and thank educators in South Australia for the important role they play: Every day, they eventually shape the future of our next generation!

Celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide, World Teachers’ Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society. It is held internationally on 5 October. In 2019 Educators SA will celebrate World Teachers’ Day on the 25th of October.

Minister’s Arts Education Award

These prestigious awards (formerly the Minister’s Arts and Education Awards administered by Carclew Youth Arts) are presented annually and reflect the ongoing commitment of the SA Government to recognise, celebrate and reward the work of outstanding teachers of the arts in South Australian public schools. The award provides $5000 to each of a primary and secondary teacher to undertake a program of professional learning of their choice in the arts.

Previous award winners have used these funds to experience professional learning that would otherwise be unavailable to them. In recognition of the work as an outstanding Arts teacher, you can nominate yourself or encourage and help someone you know of who deserves this award.

Applications close at 5:00pm on Friday 20th September 2019

The awards are presented at the Educators SA World Teachers Day Ceremonies at the Hotel Grand Chancellor on 25 October 2019. Applicants are asked to keep this date free as they may be nominated for the award.

Please read the guidelines before completing the nomination form.
